Welcome to our new, two-part weekly MLS column here at Backheeled where we break down all 29 teams in the league. 

Every Monday after the weekend’s games, we’ll dissect the latest performances, trends, tactics, news, and whatever else strikes our fancy for each club. Joe Lowery will be your guide to the Western Conference, while Ben Wright shows you around the Eastern Conference.

You won’t find this level of consistency or insight into your favorite team, your least favorite team, and the other 27 MLS teams in between anywhere else on the Internet.
